marine knowledge 2020 by I42q7B3


									• ¼ minute resolution
• coverage – all except Baltic and Outermost
• portals ready June 2012
• inventory of surveys
• includes estimates of precision
• next steps 2011-2013
  – complete coverage at ¼ minute resolution
  – engage national hydrographic offices
  – map two basins at higher resolution
• Baltic, Celtic Seas, North Sea
• Sediments, underlying strata, hazards, minerals
• 1: 1 million resolution
• Compatible with OneGeology Europe
•Next steps 2011-2013
• New project started December 2010
  –   complete European coverage
  –   current, temperature, waves, turbidity, salinity, sea level
  –   real-time and archives
  –   linked to GMES and SEADATANET
• 2011-2013
  – Follow-up based on results of first phase
• Parameters chosen to meet needs of Marine Strategy
  Framework Directive
• Phramaceuticals, antifoulants, fertilisers, sewage, metals,
  radionuclides, hydrocarbons
   – Water column, sediments, biota

• Heterogeneous measurements make interpolation in time
  and space extremely challenging
• 2011-2013
  – complete coverage of EU waters
  – enlarge list of parameters requested
– Based on Census of Marine Life
– Challenging to determine abundance and diversity from
  separate surveys
– 2011-2013
   – facilitate abundance estimates
   – align with Data Collection on fisheries and INSPIRE Directive
– first physical habitat mapping of EU waters using consistent classification
– already being used in assessment for Marine Framework Strategy Directive
– 2011-2013
   – increase coverage using regional cooperation projects
   – maintain and update
– 2011-2013
   – aquaculture sites, windmill zones, pipelines, gravel extraction
     sites etc
– Integrated viewpoint of sea-basins
   – Fitness for purpose of data
   – identification of critical gaps
   – priorities for monitoring
   – Stakholder opinion
                                              – 2011-2013
– Contributions from existing organisations
                                                 – €3,050,000
   – Regional Sea Convention
                                                 – North Sea
   – Regional Advisory Councils for
                                                 – Mediterranean
                                                 – Baltic
   – EuroGOOS
  biology     Combining surveys to determine abundance or diversity
                very challenging
 chemistry    Difficult to interpolate in time and space.
                Standardisation and quality control still an issue

  geology     Challenging but national geological surveys know what
                to do. Increasing interest in mineral resources might
                be an issue

hydrography Need to move to higher resolution.

  phyics      Too early to tell
  physical    Already useful. Need complete coverage
